Our Kansas City and St. Louis offices have teamed up with the Missouri Coalition for the Right to Counsel to ease the burden on the Missouri Public Defender Office by training attorneys at private sector firms to represent indigent defendants. Both Missouri offices have multiple associates that have been trained and are currently handling criminal cases. The program furthers the right to counsel for all, while also offering invaluable experience — in many cases in the courtroom – to our associates. Charlie Weiss, St. Louis, and Perry Brandt, Kansas City, encouraged associates from both offices to enroll in the program. St. Louis associates began receiving their cases this past spring, and Kansas City associates received their first cases this fall. The program has support from several Missouri judges, including the chief justice of the Missouri Supreme Court, and the president of the Missouri Bar.
